    Finally! This figure has been sitting in pieces on my work bench for almost 2 years. It was originally a commission piece back then but I ended up returning the customers deposit simply because I did not have time to complete it. I just finished it up last Sunday, just need to do some minor touch ups. The photos were taken quickly with my iphone. I'll probably take more with my regular camera later (maybe next year... :eek: )

    Thanks for looking!

    EDIT: 2/5/12 Uploaded more pictures! More pictures of this and some of my other work can be found on my Facebook page (link below)

    WOW, AWESOME WORK! It's so shiny that some of the reflections almost make it look like parts of it are CLEAR/Crystal!

    Before reading the comments, I didn't realize it wasn't crystal. (this, by the way, is true.)

    Also, due to the mass amount of paint, I do agree that this is heavy. :D

    Thanks for all the great compliments!

    The chrome was applied via vacuum metalizing and the paints used were Tamiya in transparent colors. It was also cleared with Tamiya gloss coat.

    You can see more of my past work on my Facebook page (link below). My Concepts in Chrome website hasn't been updated for some time and I believe some of the galleries aren't working anymore. I just need to find more time to overhaul the entire site...
